View Full Version : So Who's New In X-Men 3

So far it looks like we're getting Beast, Angel and Juggernaut.
Anyone know if any other new mutants will be in X-Men 3?
I've heard they might create a new mutant who uses her powers for hookering :?

Gambit is going to appear in a small role. The hooker mutant that you are thinking of is not being created for the movie since she exists in the comic book. Her name is Stacy X.

Thanks for clearing that up Majik

Avi Arad, in his 6 part video interview on IESB.net, said that, due to the fact that there are going to be close to 10 NEW Mutants being presented, was one of the reasons that they weren't going to have enough time to be able to give screen time to Nightcrawler, and that's why HE'S out. So, when ticking 'em out, here's who they've added:
2. The Beast
3. The Angel
4. Gambit (cameo....not much to report on him)
5. Dark Phoenix(?) I believe they said she'll be in it (they aren't talking much about that storyline.....little bit on the "hush hush" side with that).
And the anticipated return of:
4. (Not confirmed) Sabertooth
And expanded roles for
1. Shadow Cat (you know.......Kitty Pryde).
3. Syren (perhaps? Not sure about this one).
So there are MORE than enough mutants in this one that are coming about. It should be interesting.
ya'kno....overlooking some reports on dark phoenix...I think they always say "phoenix" not "dark phoenix"...I guess you can prove me wrong, and please do, but I dont remember them saying she's going to be a darker mutant...hmm... :?

Oh, there's been more than enough hints about where they are going with her bearpod. I think that they are most DEFINATELY looking to bring back Jean Grey/Dark Phoenix......with emphasis on the "Dark" side of Jean.

Yeah they're going to bring Jean back as the Dark Phoenix, but like it's been said over and over again, the movie won't be just about her. I just hope they do her character justice. Sabretooth and Toad can make a reappearance(since the actors both signed on for sequels), but it's highly doubtful that they will.
With the new additions of Stacy X and Angel, I'm thinking they might have them in some kind loving relationship, since they had one in the comic. But then again Wolverine and Sabretooth had a had a backstory that was completely ignored. I'm kind of upset that Gambit will have a small role in the film, but I think it would be like Iceman's role in the first movie.
My guess for Beast is that he's the new doctor of the institute because who else would take care of any mutant related medical problems?
Juggernaut is gonna be a power hitter on Magneto's Brotherhood, no doubt about it, along with Pyro and Mystique.
With how old Colossus was in X-2, I think another reason they're recasting Kitty is so she's around Colossus' age.
I think Jubilee and Siren would have a little more expanded role, but I think their scenes would be expendable and included in the DVD when it comes out.

I couldn't agree with you more Majik. I believe that the cameo appearance by Gambit WILL lead to a more expanded role in a future X-Men flick (X-Men 4, I would assume).
